[applause] and additionally mike mc kenny with electricians and tim paulson with the labor council and mike casey president in the back of the room over there. this is a project of the kind that makes building trades workers salivate. it is a startingly beautiful design from what we have seen so far. i am going to embarrass myself and speak in norwegian and it's the kind of project where we can look forward to bringing our skills to work on a project that will fully demand those skills, so that is quite apart from the hours it will bring to us, it quite a part from the food we will put on the table and the house payments and so on. that's one of the reasons this project really excites us and it's a dramatic project. however, we are happy to try to minimize the drama of actually building the project and this is what this particular agreement d a
. next speaker. >> hi. i am bruce smith and i would like to support this legislation. i would like to have the freedom to take my two nieces that visit from texas to a film in the castro and not come out of the theater and be exposed to naked men. i think we should have the right to introduce nudity to our children when we decide to chose, so i also think that the nudity in the castro -- i have been there for six years and helped to escalate the other problems in the area and many people that hang out i can hang out makeid, i could do anything and lead to problems in the plaza. it moves around different parts of the neighborhood and i feel strongly it should be band and it's only in the castro. many people say "why are we focused on this?" and if they were in other areas of the city but they're not. they're doing it in the castro. thank you. >> next speaker. >> i am jesan ford and i see the nudists often and rarely more than half a dozen and never visibly aroused. i am sanded that my representative, supervisor wiener, brought this legislation without open community meetings and

as for their clean, safe and welcoming space, they provide us all. thank you. >> thank you, mr. smith. is there any other public comment? >> seeing none, public comment is now closed. we can move on to our consent calendar. >> we will move into your special calendar. item 7 is a presentation of the transportation bay by architects. >> and it has been some years since we brought the design to you. and now that the towers approvals are now in place i thought that it would be appropriate for the board to hear an update from the architect of the transit tower fred clark and give you and show you the latest design. >> or at proved design. >> great. >> good morning, directors. it is a great pleasure to be here, we have made an enormous amount of progress and let me just characterize what you are going to see this morning as conceptual design in nature. we really have not quite started the full fledged design process. that is waiting for obvious reasons for various approvals. but we have engaged in an extraordinary successful collar collaboration with the san francisco planning department staff and so the
? >> karin smith. >> thank you. >> the next speaker, please? >> hello, my name is hillary cronenberg and i am a san francisco resident and i also work in the area. i happen to think a little differently than what has been going on here. i think that if i were to come to where the coffee truck would be, i would be eye opened into other restaurants, and places that i had never been before. because i am here checking out the coffee shop. so i might as well grab some lunch or bring a girlfriend back here next time. i also agree that it is very convenient with the amount of commerce that is in the area. that we have more selection, and i just think that it helps the businesses and doesn't hurt them. and i urge you to up hold the permits. thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please? >> >> my name is marcus millions and a works at the mall and i car pool and i come to howard and freemont street. and just i don't drink coffee often, but the days that where i am kind of sluggish it is kind of convenient having a truck there as opposed to going to a starbucks or petes. i have never noticed these o
smith was here and still maybe here or his jacket is anyway and i have a brief presentation to you. we have been to you in open session describing this project. it's an important transmission project designed to provide reliability of power downtown in the event of a major earthquake. is manny around to start the powerpoint presentation? >> sorry for the short delay. so i will start verbally and the slides can catch up. essentially there are a couple of transmission lines that come up from the peninsula through the po tearo power plant and connect to the embarcadero substation that provide power to downtown. at&t has proposed a new 230kv transmission line to provide redundant transmission line to the embarcadero sub station. at&t and port staff have collectively communicated with the mayor's office, the san francisco public utilities commission and the city administrator about the project. the city administrator was charged by then city administrator ed lee to look at these types of risks to the city in the event of a major seismic event and how we protect against them and weighed i
that mr. mr. smith, planter questioned me several times about our calculations and so i went back to him several time and made sure that we were right on. the crux of the matter has to do with what constitutes of the removal of a wall and what i understand and what i have been led to understand by the planning department is that if the wood framing is he remaining in tact. then that wall is not demolish and had when you have a building that is the aim of this one you are not going to be able to meet the current seismic code with those foundations because you cannot put anchor bolts into the foundation that wand the bolt that we are retired to have now and i would like to persistent out the drawings that mr. williams was showing included interior partition and is that is clearly not part of the san francisco planning department criteria for demolition it has do with interior walls and the vertical surfaces. so ... the other thing that were the to point out is that there is also not really a way to meet both the energy code, the lateral code and the fire code for walls without removing
